Wong Kar Wai adds his unique - but not particularly surprising - flavor to this episode of "The Hire", which features all of his usual trademarks; the photography, the music, the mood, the pacing, it's all his territory. Mickey Rourke is excellent in this, but all up although its watchable, I think this particular concept was wasted on Kar Wai's cinematic style.
The Hire entry by Kar-Wai boasts his normal delightful visuals but the story of Owen following an actress for Rourke is too subdued for it's own good. Excells, as does the other Fincher produced Hire inputs, in being different from anything else you've seen and very non-commercial in it's mood and tone. Good, but nothing great.
